Dear 100 Hour Board,

What is the best area to live in Provo for off campus housing?


Dear You,

It's hard to tell because it depends on your situation and what is important to you. Some important things to consider are how nice an apartment is, how much it costs, how close it is to school or work, parking, whether or not you have friends there, the culture of the apartment complex/ward, whether you want a shared room or a private room. What I like to do is identify what the single most important thing is to me, make a list based off information from the BYU Housing Guide, and then visit several different apartments. The first year I started with the cheapest apartment and then worked my way up to the first apartment I could handle. Sophomore year I looked for private apartments south of campus. This year I'm at the foreign language housing.

I feel like I've made good decisions every year. I highly recommend looking through the housing guide and making a short list to save time, and then visiting places in person. It's hard to tell how much you'll like a place based just on pictures. I hope this helps!




Dear you,

Not in Provo
